The May 2007 edition of RCM&E will be available to buy from tomorrow from the usual places. Boasting 132 pages of columns, features, reviews and, of course, a free plan, the new issue offers lots of reading for your money. This month's reviews include:

  • Funtana X-100 The king of 3D machines?
  • Saito 4a Four-stroke engine
  • FS One Hangar 9 simulator
  • Oxalys Park-fly 3D machine
  • Synergy N9 High-end helicopter
  • Yak 54 ARTF aerobat

  • Articles include David Ashby's EDF jet adventure, part two of Alex Whittaker's workshop survival guide and a focus on much-admired outfit Just Engines. There's also the latest entry in Andy Ellison's 'For Starters' series, which offers up some sound advice for prospective instructors and novice flyers alike.

    This month's free plan is Chris Read's easy-build Pogostick, designed for use with an AXI 2820/10 or equivalent. Perfectly servicable as an electric trainer or sportster, it's likely to be a popular one.

    That's just the tip of the iceberg! To see what else lies within, be sure to pick up the new issue of RCM&E from Friday, 13th April, priced at 3.50. Better still, why not save yourself some cash and subscribe?
